[sticky post] List of my userpics by order added @ 01:48 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: productive
Soundtrack: I typed some of my userpic keywords into Dunc's Algomusic IIIb to see what randomized songs I'd get

As I've mentioned a while back, I plan on replacing some of my userpics with more legible versions. (even though I've procrastinated that for probably at least a year now...)

Since I knew that doing that will cause me to lose track of what order I added my userpics, I kept a list of my userpics in my profile in order added - but I'm starting to run out of room on my profile now, so I moved it here and reformatted it into a table that hopefully looks better than the old layout.

Note that this excludes the following:
- Old versions of these userpics
- Alternate versions of some of these that I made to protest SOPA/PIPA/ACTA/etc. a few years ago

Here they are!Collapse )

Glossary of Matt1993isms @ 09:03 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: tired tired
Soundtrack: Dido - Sand in My Shoes

I finally got around to updating this glossary and moving it to a sticky post so that it wouldn't clutter up my profile and I could have LJ-cuts to jump to certain sections!

Although the whole point of these multiple LJ-cuts is for ease of navigation (i.e. if I reference a Matt1993ism in the definition of a Matt1993ism in a different section, I'd link to the proper section), I haven't had the time to actually go through and add all these links, so stay tuned for that. I also thought about adding artwork for certain entries *cough*/crazymegavideo/*cough*, so stay tuned for that too. :)

As I said in the old glossary, if you spot a Matt1993ism I used that I haven't defined here, or if FoxReplace messes up the "pucker up because it's time for lunch" entry again, etc., please let me know :)

EDIT: Added some more Matt1993isms and tags, but still need to add the links and artwork. I'm also pretty sure there was another Matt1993ism that I still forgot to add...

Super Smashing Birthdays @ 11:36 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: sleepy sleepy
Soundtrack: Super Smash Bros. 3DS/Wii U soundtrack - All-Star Rest Area

Happy a-few-minutes-early-in-my-time-zone birthday to me! :)

And also happy birthday to 13catswaltz, who has the same birthday as me! :)


And also also to Luigi - because Mario Bros. was released in Japan on July 14, 1983; my negative tenth birthday. ;)



Hey, there's an idea for a totally nerdy survey...

This page has a table (several paragraphs down from the beginning of that section...) that lists the dates every* Super Smash Bros. character debuted (because in SSB4, the order you fight them in All-Star Mode is based on that).

Use that to figure out your answers to these questions:

1) Which SSB character(s), if any, debuted on your birthday in any year?
Luigi

2) Which SSB character(s) debuted closest to the date you were born?
Meta Knight (debuted March 23, 1993 - the date closest to July 14, 1993 in that list).

3) Which SSB character(s) debuted closest to the date you created your LiveJournal/DreamWidth/some-other-journal-site account? (If you have/had multiple journals, you may answer this separately for all of them, some of them, or just one. Whichever you prefer.)
My LJ was created on August 19, 2007 - the character whose debut was closest to that is Rosalina (November 1, 2007).
My DW was created on May 13, 2017, long after the debut of the newest character (Corrin, on June 25, 2015).

:)



*Except Miis, alternate characters (the Koopalings and Alph), and characters from Melee and Brawl who aren't in SSB4. I went ahead and looked up the relevant dates in case you want to include themCollapse )

I am in no way surprised that I scored worse on this the second time around @ 04:44 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: sad sad
Soundtrack: Mario Party soundtrack - The Stolen Star

Dear Anxiety, @ 08:25 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: depressed depressed

Okay, anxiety, I get why you think the entire Internet is going to be gone two years from now. You're probably right about that.

But WHY are you continuing to make me worry about everyone hating me for still liking/using/refusing to leave LJ? It's been nearly TWO MONTHS, and not one person has actually said "I hate you because you still like LJ", and I've actually met several new friends who are on LJ and not DreamWidth. So why are you still making me worry about it?! Anxiety, you're ruining my life!

Sincerely,
Matt1993

Location (or, in some REALLY old entries, insult to Detect Button): DreamWidth
Right now I am annoyingly: accomplished
Soundtrack: Kid Icarus: Uprising - Solo Menu (Viridi)

Silly reference to my first entry ever aside, yes, I'm done copying all my LJ entries to DreamWidth! Well, except for community entries... and making sure that all of my entries copied over the way they're supposed to... I still have a long ways to go. My LJ was kind of a non-Euclidean mess already, and now I'm having to make sure that nothing looks too weird when it was transferred to DreamWidth. If you see anything that looks like it didn't copy over correctly, let me know.

Now I'm going to test to see what happens if I post a poll in a DW entry that gets cross-posted to LJ...

 

My apocalypse dreams never warned me about any of this... @ 02:22 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: scared scared
Soundtrack: Kid Icarus: Uprising soundtrack - The War's End (sped up like when you're running out of time in Mario)

Okay, it's become ABUNDANTLY clear that EVERY community I've ever posted in on LJ is probably going to be gone by the end of the month, so this is definitely the best time (unless I can go back in time and do this several years ago...) for me to finally start creating a backup account on DreamWidth.


Dear owners/maintainers of _dreams_, add_me, asperger, corrupted_wish, goodbandnames, iwish, newfriends, omgrandom, randomthought, strongbademail, suggestions, synaesthesis, the_number_206, and even thequestionclub and ask_me_anything since I know I posted in at least one of those two (and also any community that I forgot I've posted in):

PLEASE LEAVE YOUR COMMUNITIES UP AT LEAST UNTIL I HAVE EVERY ENTRY I POSTED IN THEM SAVED SOMEWHERE.

The sky is falling,
Matt1993


Before I create a DW account, though, I still have a few more questions:

- What happens to the userpics on my entries if I start having them be automatically copied over to DW before I upload the same userpics to DreamWidth? Will the keywords still be there so that if I upload userpics to DreamWidth with the same keywords, they'll show up where they're supposed to? (Does DW even use userpic keywords?)
- Can entries that are automatically transferred from LJ to DW be edited manually when they're on DreamWidth? Because I might have to if something in them doesn't get copied over.
- I want to backup my entries in my own journal AND my entries in LJ communities to DreamWidth so the latter won't be lost if when more communities I posted in disappear. I'm so desperate that I'll even copy every community entry over one by one if I have to (which I will have to for autism, anyway - via email notifications about comments on my entries there, because luckily I still have those), but is there any way to have that automatically be done? And if so, will the comments stay there?
- Which of the communities I mentioned do you think has the highest chance of being deleted anytime soon? That way I can start with those.

EDIT: Created my account on DW - my username is still matt1993. (Is there a way to link to a DW account from LJ or vice versa, like with the <lj> tag?) Anyway, I'm still setting up a lot of things on DW, but if I list you as a friend on LJ and I know your DreamWidth username, I added you there as well. If I didn't add you yet, then add me on DreamWidth and I'll add you back (if you have different LJ and DW usernames, tell me your DW username through LJ or vice versa). :)

You have got to be pulling on my leg... @ 06:18 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: scared scared

ExplainXKCD.com, mezzacotta.net, and irregularwebcomic.net are all down at the same time?!

This is scaring me... now I feel the need to check all other websites I like (or at least the ones I mentioned here) to make sure they're still up. :(

A bunch of random things I've been meaning to post for a while @ 09:57 pm

Soundtrack: not Queen Anne's Lace or Lady Prudence, unfortunately :(

So, last weekend my friend and I went to Scarborough Faire! It really felt like a trip back in time... to 2009. :P (2009 was the last time I was there, even though I apparently never posted about that time.) While I was there, I discovered a new band (Queen Anne's Lace) and new musician (Lady Prudence) that I really like, and even bought one CD of each!

...that I just discovered I can't listen to because the CD/DVD player in my computer apparently stopped working at some point between February and now. :(

(EDIT A DAY LATER: Got it working again with ellaina02's help! Yay! Future self, if you're reading this and having the same problem: I had to go to Device Manager and uninstall the CD drive, then restart Windows so it'd automatically reinstall. No more websites I like have gone down between my time and when you got to play Super Smash Bros. 5 at that Enya concert, have they?!)


And when I got home, I finally got to watch Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs! I've been wanting to see that ever since it came out eight years ago! :)


Also, I took this screenshot on Wednesday (I think), so it's a little outdated now, but:



I can't believe I joined LJ closer in time to when it launched than to the present. Why do I have the sudden urge to yell at kids to get off my lawn? :)


There were probably more things I wanted to post about but I forgot because I'm disappointed about not getting to listen to my new CDs yet. :(
